"How do innovations come about anyway? Do they start with an ingenious line drawn by the hand of a designer, with a new technology or a new material? They certainly do. However, often new product innovations come from the supplier industry, which paves the way into the market for new materials and technologies. The detail solutions and materials developed by this industry form the basis of the innovations by large brand companies. therefore, this book is not about a new "look", but about intelligent solutions for products with added value and about new materials and modules for the design of tomorrow's living environments. As a platform for the leading innovations of the supplier industry, this book includes profiles of all the products that have received an award from the international jury of renowned designers at the interzum 2005 in Cologne. Furthermore, it also explains how new materials and functions come about and points out the potentials for creative people from the fields of architecture and design, containing an in-depth interview with star designer Philippe Starck as a prominent representative."--BOOK JACKET.
